He’s a short dude with a big idea – a skillful thief among thieves. And this time, Billy “Mouse” Morrison is plotting his greatest heist yet. The goods? A mother lode of Mexican cartel marijuana, planted deep within the hidden canyons of Oregon’s Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.
Days after briefing his crew, Mouse is brutally and mysteriously beaten to death. Now his associates are left wondering—but when you’re in the business of stealing from other thieves, the list of suspects becomes long and dangerous, and there’s no saying who had it in for Mouse.
When Mouse’s compadres Luzon Marino and Bob Creek decide to follow through on their own—now in uneasy alliance with fence Gus Steiner and his violent, sadistic boyfriend Omar—loyalties waver, emotions run hot, and the gang slips into the crosshairs of powerful adversaries.
A gritty, fast-paced tale ripped straight from the headlines, The Grow is a dark and suspenseful look at the perils of illegal outdoor marijuana grow operations and the lifestyles of 21st century career criminals.
